You can see an earlier version of Free Radical here.  I inverted the composition to highlight the twice-dyed fabric.  The dyes are called ‘pineapple’ and ‘melon’ and I almost called this piece ‘Fruit Salad,” but I refrained.  I tried some new-for-me techniques:  raw cut edges and using stencils and acrylic textile paint to put the shapes on fabric.  I am especially intrigued by the cutwork and will continue to explore that.  The piece is layered and stitched in the border only.
